The Narrow but Wide Gate

“I am the Gate; whoever enters through Me; will be saved.” John 10:9 (NIV)

“Enter through the narrow Gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter…But small is the Gate and narrow the road that leads to life…” Matthew 7:13,14 (NIV)

“Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God…everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the Victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.” 1 John 5:1-4 (NIV)

Dear Gate of All Life,

You are narrow only in the sense You are the One and Only option for Eternal Life! Choosing You opens other wondrous doors of life unseen until we open the Door that is You. You are so much Bigger on the inside than the gate of entry could suggest, yet, You live in us! 

You sustain our new Life. Let us abide in You as You do in us. You are our Gate, our Vine, our Living Hope, our Strength, our Shepherd, our Counselor, our Victory, our Overcomer, our Savior! 

We will keep walking through You and in You and only You. The baffling question is how You fit all of Your Eternal, Amazing Self, into us?! Let us be bigger on the inside too.  In Jesus Name Forever

    Thank you Jesus for fitting all of Your Eternal, Amazing Self, into us! In your Most Holy and Precious Name Forever and ever….. Amen
